Relatives/correction
Message from mohammad51 posted on 24-10-2021 at 13:00:16 (D | E | F)
Hello

Please proofread my answers.
Thank you in advance.


1 This is the book what about I was telling you. ( which instead of what)

2 There's a new machine at the gym I think you would really like it.

(Though I solved below, this sentence makes me confused)

At the gym, there is a new machine which \ that you would really like.

( Remove it and move the prepositional phrase to the front position so that to avoid confusing with the modifier).

The relative pronoun can be omitted ( object pronoun) >> You really like \ would like

3 We're travelling to Dubai, where I've always wanted to visit.

( which not where identifies the city- which city ?) Non-defining because identified by a name.

4 I was worrying about my luggage, that I'd forgotten to weigh before we left. >> ( remove comma )
That is not set by comma >> That is used in defining relative clauses only.

5 Chris, who his father owns the company, always works really hard. >> ( whose instead of who )

6 I've finally had to replace my old car, I've had since I passed my test. >> ( which I have had )

Hello
This is what I would have written
This is the book /*/that/which/I was telling you about.

At the gym, there is a new machine which \ that you would really like.


3 We're travelling to Dubai, a place (that) I've always wanted to visit.

4 I was worrying about my luggage that I'd forgotten to weigh before we left.

5 Chris, whose father owns the company, always works really hard.

6 I finally had to replace my old car, a car I'd had since I passed my test. >> (that/ which I have had )

Hi there!

I'm a native English speaker. While there are a few different ways to write your answers, these are how I would have written them naturally...

1. This is the book that I was telling you about.
2. There's a new machine at the gym that I think you might really like.
3. We're traveling to Dubai, which I've always wanted to visit.
4. I was so worried about my luggage that I had forgotten to weight it before we left.
5. Chris, whose father owns the company, always works very hard.
6. I ended up having to replace my car, which I've had since I passed my test.

I hope this helps! 😊

Thank you for being helpful on the forum.
However it would be better if you could just show the mistakes, not really correct them.

Hello
Thank you both teachers gerondif and westen

Dear teacher westen I don't agree with your sentence :

There's a new machine at the gym that I think you might really like.

Here ( that) in your sentence refers to the noun ( gym )
So, it makes confusion; which one we want to modify the machine or the gym
And for this reason, I separated the prepositional, and put it at the beginning.

Hello,
In my opinion there isn't any confusion about that sentence:
There's a new machine at the gym that I think you might really like.

Hello,

Thank you dear teacher lucile83

In the sentence you recommend ( that as a conjunction ) = relative pronoun, so it is a complex sentence.

There's a new machine at the gym that I think you might really like.

How it looks if I rewrite using a semicolon to make a compound sentence instead of a complex ?

There's a new machine at the gym; I think you would \ might really like it.

Hello,

There's a new machine at the gym that I think you might really like. Here I understand you focus on the fact that there is a new machine.

There's a new machine at the gym; I think you would\might really like it. Here I understand you focus on the fact that it is at the gym.
